No. You cannot transfer from device to device. What you do is register the new device to the same account as the old one, and then download what you want to the new device.

To clarify, I can not move books I have stored on my Sony ereader to the paperwhite? Sony has no connect capabilities.

Ha, that's a major clarification! But, the answer is the same: you cannot transfer from device to device.

No, your Paperwhite can't read the Sony books, they are in an incompatible format. If you have a Kindle Fire you can sideload the Sony reader app and read those books on your Kindle Fire, but not on the Paperwhite.

If I have the books on my computer & convert them to the paperwhite format can I move them from the computer to PW?

I had no idea that you can convert Sony books to the Kindle format. How do you do that, Michael?

If they are DRM protected you can't legally convert them.
